Paulistanas, nômades e analógicas. Por definições: A de duas pernas é turismóloga, curiosa, uma idealista desencanada, servidora e amante. A de quatro patas é a melhor companheira de viagem do universo, carente, viajada e espirituosa. As duas são lentas. E essa é uma baita duma qualidade! Na estrada há mais de 3 anos, pedalamos pela Alemanha, Áustria, Itália, Espanha e Portugal, isso sem contar umas viagenzinhas pelo sudeste e sul do Brasil como preliminares. Juntas seguimos em busca de outros céus, onde brilhem os olhos! -.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.- From São Paulo, we are analog nomads. One has two legs, studied tourismology (yes, such word exists!), is curious, present and lover. The other one is just the best travel partner ever, needy and witty. We make the slow living lifestyle and we love it. We have been on the road for more than 3 years now, cycling through Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain and Portugal, besides small trips around Brasil when we started. Our motto is to keep going for somewhere our eyes are sparkled.

Brazil

Bota.Nicas is the perfect place for those in love with nature who are willing to help and have a good dosis of creativity. The place is still very rustic, so there is a lot to do and you are free to pick any task you fit to. The sky is the limit there =)

Sara e eu tivemos uma incrível conexão, acredito que fiz uma amiga pra vida toda! Mesmo não sendo fluente em español, a comunicação fluiu bem, com liberdade e respeito. Aprendi um montão sobre bioconstrução, permacultura, vida simples... E a Pipoca não queria deixar esse lugar! Já sinto saudades imensas!

Sara and I had an incredible conexion, a friendship for the whole life! Even me not speaking good Spanish, communication was light and respectful all the time. I learned a lot about bioconstruction, permaculture, simple life... ♡
Pipoca and me are already missing Pedriñal a lot!

Background

Education

Well, I have a Bachelor and a Master degree, but I don't really want to list them here. Not that I regret having had them, nor I'm ashamed or don't like it, it'sjust that I'm really looking foward for different approaches right now, and I rather pretend I'm a "empty bottle", ready to be fullfilled. ;-)

Work Experience

My professional background includes IT and Project Management, but the most pleasant jobs in my life I did not for money.
Helping in a shelter rescuing street dogs was one of the first volunteer jobs I've done in my life (there I met Pipoca ^_^). Later, travelling, we cooperated in dozens of bio / organic Farms, learning about dealing with animals, going for wood in the forest, growing, harvesting, washing and selling the vegetables in the markt and helping on Farmshops.
I also cooked for families sometimes, which I just LOVE to do! ♡
We stayed at a Hostel and other Bed & Breakfast small businesses where we did all king of help: beds, toilett, kitchen, reception...

Travel Experience

We started in Brasil, where we traveled a bit by car through the south of the country. In Europe, we chose a bicycle as our main transport, which means we are slow travelers.
We definetly prefer skipping shopping and big / touristic cities.
Travelling has being our lifestyle for the past 3 years.
